Cliff Areol: I was flipping through radio stations this afternoon, and stumbled upon Sean Hannity's show To be honest, I didn't know he was still on the radio. Anyway, Sean was going on and on about all the great things Trump has done since he took office. Sean mentioned that Trump had taken the LPR (Labor Participation Rate) to "record highs". This was about the only economic statistic that didn't turn for the better after President Obama's Stimulus Plan spending kicked in back in 2009. All the other things Sean mentioned - GDP, unemployment, jobs gained/lost per month, stock market, etc. turned around and had been steadily improving for 6 or 7 years before Trump. So Republicans had to point to the LPR, which is just as much a function of the baby boomers getting older and retiring as it is a measurement of the economy, as a sign that the Obama economy was not so rosy. That didn't sound right to me. So I checked, and found that the LPR, which is measured every month, was lower in October (the last month that we have numbers for), was down from when Trump took over in January. And the record high was in January of 2000 (when Bill Clinton was President). We are no where close to the record. I now remember why I stopped listening to Sean Hannity. He lies, rapid fire, to his audiences. He lies so fast that it's hard to keep track of what he is saying, much less fact check him. See if you can find his radio show from today, 12/05/17, to hear what he says about LPR.
